Blood Tests

Phlebotomy is performed by our visiting phlebotomist three mornings a week, and also by the Health Care Assistant and Practice Nurses when required.

Blood clinics are also available as a drop in clinic at Chorley District Hospital between 8.30am and 4.00pm Monday to Friday.

All bloods and samples are collected by the hospital at the end of the morning - we ask that you submit any urine or stool samples by 12 noon.

 

Test Results

Most blood and microbiology results are returned to us within 3 days. We ask that requests for test results be made from 10am each day .

In order to maintain confidentiality test results will only be given to patients themselves, the parents of minors, or to carers if appropriate and at the doctor’s discretion.
